Right Where I Belong

Right Where I Belong

On 1/8 The Review Stew wrote: When I saw that Krista McGee had come out with another book in her series of characters, I knew I had to read it! I have really enjoyed the other two, First Date and Starring Me and I just knew I would enjoy this one too! But no worries, if you haven't read the first two, this book can be read as a stand ... Another great book from Krista McGee!

A Path Toward Love

A Path Toward Love

On 8/31 The Review Stew wrote: This book was really well written and I really enjoyed reading it! I love the 1800's time period this book was set in - it is so crazy the etiquette rules and gossip that reigned in that era (each era has their own set of problems, don't they?). But it is such an interesting era to read about! This ... Great Historical Fiction Novel!

Brush of Angel's Wings

Brush of Angel's Wings

On 4/23 The Review Stew wrote: I have been reading A LOT of Amish books lately because they really seem to be the "it book" these days! The Amish are receiving more attention and media in books than I bet they ever thought they would! Sometimes the Amish books and the subjects can be repetitive and, frankly, a little boring. However, ... Great Amish book!

Beauty for Ashes

Beauty for Ashes

On 2/16 The Review Stew wrote: This book was all about patience - patience in life, trusting in God, and also patience with the pace of the book. For me, it was a really slow moving book and made me really have patience as I read the book. The romance formed really slow between Carrie and Griff and everytime you thought they would ...

Sweeter Than Birdsong

Sweeter Than Birdsong

On 2/1 The Review Stew wrote: This book was the second book in the A Saddler's Legacy series (the first one was Fairer than Morning). I read the first one, but it really had nothing to do with this book. The characters from Fairer than Morning were the parents in Sweeter than Birdsong. So don't worry if you haven't read the first ... Book Review: Sweeter Than Birdsong

The Love & Respect Experience

The Love & Respect Experience

On 12/1 The Review Stew wrote: This devotion book was husband friendly, but was also great for wives! It had some great points, but the author also discussed and talked A LOT about his Love & Respect speaking engagements and book. I would have liked to hear a little more about God and what he says in the Bible and less about the author ... Book Review: The Love & Respect Experience

The Wonder of Your Love

The Wonder of Your Love

On 10/20 The Review Stew wrote: I loved this second book in the Land of Canaan Series by Beth Wiseman. Don't worry if you didn't read the first book (I didn't!) and it didn't take anything away from the book or confuse the reader. As far as I am concerned, it seemed like a standalone book! I loved how this book was set in an unique ... Great and Unique Amish Fiction

Fairer than Morning

Fairer than Morning

On 4/23 The Review Stew wrote: Fairer Than Morning by Rosslyn Elliott was a great historical fiction book about Pittsburgh and the Midwest in the 19th Century. What I loved the most is that the Rosslyn Elliott incorporated real people and their stories into this book (Will Hanby, the Millers, and other characters) I love knowing ...

Lonestar Homecoming

Lonestar Homecoming

On 4/13 The Review Stew wrote: Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble is the third book in a series, but they are not all connected so you can read them separately and still know what is going on in each. This book is about Gracie Lister and her five year old daughter Hope. Gracie is always running from her problems but they eventually ... Adult Book Review - Lonestar Homecoming by Colleen Coble
